HI,

Ok, within 5 seconds, turn the key in the ignition on-off-on-off-on, leaving it in the on position(on position is position just before cranking).

Look at the check engine light and it should flash on and off. count the flashes, followed by a pause, followed by the flashes until it repeats it self.

Let me know the number of flashes between each pause

HI,

Hmmm, that is the only way I know to retrieve the codes manually on the older Dodge with obd1 computers. Let me opt out and see if another expert knows of an alternate method

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
